Using the Portal
If you need to update your clinic’s information such as banking details or change of address, please notify DentiCare ASAP.
After we have been notified, you will be sent the appropriate documentation to complete and sign to advise of the new practice details.
To contact us regarding a change of detail, you can raise a Support Request through the DentiCare Provider App under the Support menu.
Changing Your Existing Plan
When a patient is transferring out of your practice, for example, when they are moving interstate, or simply further away from your clinic, a treatment-to-date cost is required from you so DentiCare can adjust the Payment Plan accordingly.
Once the Payment Plan has been finalised, we will cancel the Plan and the patient can continue their treatment at the new practice.
If they would like to continue DentiCare, they will be required to complete a new DentiCare Payment Plan at the new practice.
For any adjustments to patient’s accounts, you can submit an Amendment Request via the Amendments section in the Provider App, or email to the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
